  • Almost 19,000 square feet of retail space, 18,973, more than their planned team office space of 18,600

The presentation also includes isometric renderings to help illustrate some of the features of the stadium around the field:

More artwork will be shown later at the hearing (but if you are resourceful, can be found on the Zoning Commission's website now).
